Posh v Lincoln City | Match Preview

Posh host Lincoln City at the Weston Homes Stadium on Saturday.

30 April 2021

Darren Ferguson’s men welcome Lincoln City to the Weston Homes Stadium on Saturday afternoon (3pm).

Peterborough United entertain in-form Lincoln City at the Weston Homes Stadium on Saturday afternoon in Sky Bet League One action (3pm) knowing that a point will secure automatic promotion to the Sky Bet Championship.

A 2-2 draw with Doncaster Rovers on Tuesday evening moved Posh a point closer to their target and avoiding defeat to the Imps will be enough to edge over the line. Meanwhile, Lincoln need a point to secure their play-off spot ahead of their game in hand with Charlton Athletic on Tuesday night.

TEAM NEWS

Darren Ferguson welcomes back midfielder Reece Brown from a slight hamstring injury for the game, but goalkeeper Christy Pym is still sidelined with a muscle problem. Ronnie Edwards is available again after injury.

Lincoln are set to be without Brennan Johnson due to an injury sustained in the first half of their 1-0 victory at Shrewsbury Town on Tuesday night. Anthony Scully, who came on for Johnson, could return to the starting line-up, although Tom Hopper and Harry Anderson are also in contention.

FROM THE GAFFER

“Lincoln are a good team, they have a lot of energy in their side and they have been on a really good run of late. The game at Sincil Bank we dominated early on, they got a goal back just after half-time and then the red card to Nathan Thompson changed the game. We know what we need to do, we are focussed on that. We are closer than we were to achieving what we set out to achieve on Tuesday evening,” Darren Ferguson said.
